Former President Bush Sr. Calls Trump a ‘Blowhard’

He isn’t holding his tongue on this one.

Former President George Bush Sr. talked politics in a new book called ‘The Last Republicans.’ He and his song, former President George H.W. Bush, said that neither of them voted for Trump in the last election despite being Republican party fixtures. ‘I don’t like him. I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.’

George H.W. Bush made similar remarks, saying ‘As you know from looking at my family, humility is a certain heritage. That’s what they expect, and we’re not seeing that (in Trump).’

Naturally, the White House didn’t stay quiet long after the comments came to light, saying ‘If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had.’ The statement continued, ‘And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history.’

Trump, while winning on the Republican ticket, was never fully supported by the party. He has continued to be at odds with the Republican majority Congress since being elected.

The book, ‘The Last Republicans,’ goes on sale November 14th.

    I liked to elder Bush, but never truly loved him. He served at a number of very high government positions and was in the right place to become president.
    I loved GW as president. Our country prospered while he was president contrary to our dims and liberal press saying otherwise.
    After he failed to pardon Scooter Libby, I lost respect for him but still liked him very much.
    He never said anything negative about Obama, the most damaging president to America and American interest in history. Trump comes along and completely starts to reverse 8 years of terrible decision making and the Bushes not only don’t support him but work against him.
    Yes he is brash, loud and boastful, but Teddy Roosevelt was also. It’s theatre and branding. Branding is what got Trumps name out there in order that he could become POUS.
